Hope in Troubled Times



Hopelessness is the cruelest emotion. I felt hopeless once. I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. Hopelessness is like being in a dark hole. You don’t know how to get out and you don’t care.

If you have ever experienced hopelessness, and you’re still around to tell about it, you understand the inextricable need of all human beings to have HOPE.

Simply by our proximity to Jesus, we can bring hope and life to people and places trapped in discouragement and despair.” 

Pastor Louie Giglio

What greater motivation could there be for devoting time each day to God alone? My prayer is that because I seek Him, others will see Him and take hold of that hope that anchors my soul.

“We are never without hope, because we are never without Him.”

Sarah Rodriguez Rhodes

Sarah writes about the day, shortly after her husband’s death, when doctors told her there was no hope for the life of her two-week-old baby girl. But Sarah says, “We are never without hope because we are never without Him.” You can read her testimony of God’s faithfulness here. Sarah’s Story

“…Christ Jesus (is) our HOPE…” 1 Timothy 1:1

A Christian’s hope isn’t an escape or wishful thinking, but something that a Christian is meant to do.

C.S. Lewis

When you go through deep waters I will be with you.” Isaiah 43:2 NIV

“May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.” Romans 15:13 NIV

“For whatever was written in former days was written for our instruction, that through endurance and through the encouragement of the Scriptures we might have hope.” Romans 15:4 

“For in this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.” Romans 8:24-25

“I don’t know what the future may hold, but I know who holds the future.”

Ralph Abernathy

What gives me the most hope every day is God’s grace; knowing that his grace is going to give me the strength for whatever I face, knowing that nothing is a surprise to God.

Rick Warren

  1. Thank you for this encouraging post. I too have had periods of feeling completely hopeless and despairing. It’s a difficult place to be. I’m grateful that God is the God of all hope, and that He is the one we can trust our future to.
